Graduation Rate

Loading...
25%
BELOW AVERAGE

Dutchess Community College graduation rate is below the national average.

25% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Dutchess Community College completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This index doesn’t take into consideration students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare institutions.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Dutchess Community College

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

I went to DCC for two years studying Criminal Justice. Dutchess Community College's CRJ program provided me with TOP NOTCH professors who inspired me to pursue my dream of attending John Jay College of Criminal Justice after graduating. I attended John Jay after graduating DCC to explore the many dimensions of justice. I just graduated John Jay with honors and I cannot thank the professors at DCC for their inspiration and motivation they provided to me. They're the ones who made me the motivated person I am today! DCC is a wonderful environment for anyone looking to find their path in life. I highly reccomend this school, especially the CRJ major to people of all ages. No where else will you find professors who are so dedicated to their students and show passion for them to succeed in everything they do. You will not regret coming to this school for an excellent education.

Overall Rating:

I have been here or 2 years. I hate it. Don't plan on going to the financial aide office unless you want to be talked to like your 3 years old by A FELLOW STUDENT. Never once will you deal with an actual adult. Also the teachers are full of themselves. Everyone here is unhelpful.

Overall Rating:

Some teachers here teach also teach at Marist or Vassar. That means they can work you hard. It's a maintained place and if you treat it like a college, you will do well looking into a school of a higher level.
